i’m jealous of tombées du camion


Ahh, Paris. Home of fine wine, croissants, galleries galore and… Tombées du Camion {Fallen off the Truck}, a small shop, packed to the rafters with the most inspirational ‘junk’ you’ve ever seen. I’ve been to Paris four times but somehow I missed this. Damn. Ok, that’s it… I’m going back. There’s a vintage doll leg in there with my name on it.

{I found about this amazing little place via Junk Culture.}

    Wouldn’t you love to spend an afternoon in there… actually, you might need the whole day. Crepes will have to wait!

    Love your blog – have passed the link on to lots of folks, but just had to write and thank you for posting about this Paris shop – my first trip to Paris is later this month and I just printed their address on my must see list. Merci!

    I visited this shop on Sunday, and it was so cute. I couldnt resist buying! It is a very small shop but packed full of sweet tiny treasures!

    There are a few exciting shops such as this, all walking distance from each other!

    I too cannot recommend a visit here enough!
